One-Click Map on a new level

For many years, a vision of OCAD has been to create a usable orienteering map with just one click.

With the latest OCAD Update we have come a step closer to our vision.

Thanks to freely accessible geodata, excellent maps for Switzerland and Finland can be created with the New Map Wizard. The trend towards freely available geodata can also be observed in other countries and we hope to be able to include these countries in the function as well in near future.

Video examples:

More information is available in the OCAD Wiki. The whole auto-generated Jukola 2020 Map Rovaniemi can be downloaded here.

Note: The geodata import for Finland and Switzerland is still a Beta version. Feedback is welcome.
